Site run by the parish council
The Government encourages parish councils to produce their own Neighbourhood Plans, thus enabling local people to have a say in how their neighbourhood grows and develops. In 2018 a Working Group of the Parish Council commenced the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan for Laxfield.
On 7 August 2020 the Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents were submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council. To view the submitted plan documents please click on the links below:
We will update this page once we know details about Mid Suffolk’s consultation.
The Neighbourhood Plan preparation process includes a number of stages that have to be completed before the Plan is adopted. These are:
The Neighbourhood Plan Area, covering the whole of the parish of Laxfield, was designated by Mid Suffolk District Council in February 2018.
We have carried out a number of consultation exercises, ranging from discussions with particular groups within the parish, to parish-wide events. A list of all the consultation events can be found by clicking here.
We carried out a Household Survey and a Young Adult Survey in October 2018 and a summary of the results can be viewed by clicking here.
We’ve also prepared a number of background 'Evidence Documents' to support the policies in the Plan. To see these documents click on the following link:
We have completed this stage.
